New protocol for successful isolation and amplification of DNA from exiguous fractions of specimens: a tool to overcome the basic obstacle in molecular analyses of myxomycetes
Herbarium collections provide an essential basis for a wide array of biological research and, with development of DNA-based methods, they have become an invaluable material for genetic analyses. Yet,… Expand
What an Intron May Tell: Several Sexual Biospecies Coexist in Meriderma spp. (Myxomycetes).
Specimens of the snowbank myxomycete Meriderma atrosporum agg. from five European mountain ranges were sequenced for parts of the nuclear small subunit ribosomal RNA gene (SSU) and the protein… Expand
Nivicolous Trichiales from the austral Andes: unexpected diversity including two new species
ABSTRACT Nivicolous myxomycetes are a group of amoebozoan protists dependent on long-lasting snow cover worldwide. Recent fine-scale analysis of species diversity from the austral Andes revealed high… Expand
Is the polymorphism in the promoter region of CYP17 gene a risk factor for prostate cancer in Polish population
Materials and methods . A single-nucleotide polymorphism (T→C) in the promoter of CYP17 gene was examined in patients with prostate cancer and age-matched controls. The DNA was extracted from blood… Expand
Meriderma species (Myxomycetes) from the Polish Carpathians: a taxonomic revision using SEM-visualized spore ornamentation
Meriderma represents a recently described genus of nivicolous myxomycetes with high morphological variability. Due to many complications in its taxonomy and species recognition in the past, the group… Expand
Single nucleotide polymorphisms in androgen-related genes and prostate cancer
Range-wide Phylogeography of a Nivicolous Protist Didymium nivicola Meyl. (Myxomycetes, Amoebozoa): Striking Contrasts Between the Northern and the Southern Hemisphere.
Soil protists play a crucial role in terrestrial ecosystems and often show immense taxonomic diversity. However, for many groups, distribution patterns remain largely unknown. We investigated… Expand
Phytoremediation with Geosiphon-like symbiosis?
Dear Editor, In their recent article published in Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Anna Ogar et al. (2015) have shown, thanks to a careful experimental design, that the addition of… Expand
